's jobs report is, quote, a sad reminder that the economy is at a virtual standstill. a standstill? we've had 32 straight months of private sector job growth. that's nearly 5 1/2 million jobs. president obama took us back from the brink of an economic catastrophe. that's leadership. that's a heck of a closing argument and what governor romney is offering doesn't even stand. joining me is krystaal ball and alicia menendez. krystal, will we look back and say that this is the week that decided this election? >> i think we will look back and say this is the week that he sealed the deal. if the president came into this week with a lead in the critical battleground states, he came in with a little bit of momentum, although things were relatively static. but i do think between the response to hurricane sandy, between the way that governor christie embraced him this week, mayor bloomberg's endorsement, the magazine endorsement and then the jobs number today i think sealed the deal. i think it's the critical piece. as we respond as a country to a natural disaster to a crisis situation, we reali
about the critical issue remaining, the u.s. economy, the final jobs report before election day came out today. employers added 171,000 jobs to their payrolls in october, better than the experts expected. unemployment rate ticked up to 8.79% as people actively looked for work, not surprisingly with four days to go, both sides are actively spinning the numbers in their own direction, peter alexander from westchester, ohio, good evening. >> reporter: brian, good evening to you with a quick hat to kid rock struming the guitar on the stage, both sides say the job numbers back up their case, both the president and mitt romney spending much of their day here in the state of ohio, how important is the buckeye state? so important that betweenq the two of them they will be here five more times over the next three days. charging into the campaign's final weekend, each candidate tried to frame the latest unemployment reports to his advantage, as either a sign of economic progress. >> this morning, we learned that companies hired more people in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> r
we study. in a free market economy, recessions and recoveries, upswings and down swings are part and parcel of the world we live in. when you look at how budgets are proposed, off of the congressional budget office projection. they are not that realistic. in 2014, 2015, 2016, they are projected real gdp growth of 4.4%. sounds pretty good. how realistic is it? if you take a look at reality, what's happened since the beginning of the century? gdp has grown at 1.7% and we know we are in a pretty sluggish economy. there is a huge disconnect between what's proposed and what's going on outside this window? >> that's the big deal. the claim is, i'm going to go in and cut taxes. don't worry, cutting taxes is going to be stimulative. we are going to end up with way more jobs and there will be fewer taxes from each individual. there will be way more people paying into the tax system. revenue neutral. lakshman is telling us you have a choice over how much you charge people in taxes. they may not produce all the jobs. what he is doing on day one is adding to the deficit. >> could be but let'
. part of why ohio's economy has bounced back is we did not let detroit go bankrupt. the obama administration bailed out the automobile industry. it's roared back to life and the big three are hiring again. yesterday mitt romney gave that obama administration success story a little mitt romney tickle. >> i saw a store today that one of the great manufacturers in this state is thinking of moving all production to china. >> wow. mr. romney saying, hey, don't get too comfy there, ohio, with the obama rescue of the automobile industry. it's been better. we saved everything here and that's why you have jobs, but don't get too comfy. i read they are moving all the jobs working for jeep. they are moving all the jeep jobs to china. he said that in ohio on the campaign trail 12 days before the election. and it is not true at all. the real jeep news that day was actually that chrysler announced they were adding 1100 new jobs in the u.s. here making jeeps in detroit. and chrysler says it could hire almost as many people at another plant in warren, michigan. chrysler is investing half a bi
%. that's a 12-point swing. the question of whether or not this economy has turned the corner is no longer a question. it's turned the corner thanks mostly to the work of president obama. >> professor, romney today tried to provide a vision of what he'd like to do as president. let's take a listen to mr. romney. >> i know that when i'm elected the economy and the american job market will still be stagnant, but i won't waste any time complaining about my predecessor. i won't spend my effort trying to pass partisan legislation that's unrelated to economic growth. gee said he won't spend his time complain being his predecessor. in fact, he'll take credit for the economic recovery that's under way as he took credit for the success of the education in massachusetts even though he was only governor for four years. >> clearly the economy is not stagna stagnant. there are a lot of different statistical data that suggests the economy is slowly but steadily recovering, and it's real interesting for mr. romney to sort of suggest he's not going to play social conservative politics when he's been playi
/"washington post" poll, stephanie, it shows romney making headway on the economy. who's offering a clear plan. back in july, obama had a 16-point lead on that measure. today, it's tied. we know that president obama is focusing on that now. did you wait too long? >> absolutely not. i mean, you know, it's interesting that you're pointing out your national tracker poll but in the virginia poll that you just cited we are beating mitt romney in terms of who do you trust to get the economy going? in terms of the president's plans, we're happy to talk about them. the president laid them out at the convention. we ran a two-minute ad on it. we have been campaigning across the country on this plan. you know, whether it's putting the best trained workers in place all over this country. bringing jobs back to this country, rather than sending them overseas or doing some nation-building at home. we're ending two wars. using that savings to do nation-building here at home. these are big plans and the president laid them out at the convention and it's a second term of an obama presidency will mean. it stands in sh

the impact on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on our economy and on transportation. the election will take care of itself next week. right now, our number one priority is to to make sure that we are saving lives that are search and rescue teams will be in place and people will get the food, the water shs the shelter they need in case of emergency and we respond as quickly as possible to get the economy back on track. >> the election will take care of itself. that was president obama addressing reporters earlier today at the white house. this is one of the things you can't really predict in terms of the effect on a presidential campaign. this massive storm, a storm of more than regional, basically national significance. it's hit the pause button on a presidential campaign. it's hard to know how it's going to play out exactly. mostly because we don't know what the overall impact of the storm itself is going to be. the defacto suspension of the campaign itself today and the handling of this crisis by president obama and to a lesser extent mitt romney made themselves be
, let's start with the economy which everyone agrees is the number one concern for voters. senator johnson in wisconsin, let me put up numbers, the unemployment rate is nationally 7.8% and gdp growth in the third quarter rose from 1.3% in the second quarter to 2.0 and it is still a weak recovery but aren't the president's policies starting to turn things around? >> no, we have had incredibly tepid, meager recovery, and the fact that gdp rose 2%, all you can say is it is less bad news and what happened here in wisconsin, after the first debate, the very false character president obama spent hundreds of millions of dollars portraying governor romney was shattered and when wisconsin saw it, he was a man with integrity and intelligence and had a plan unlike president obama, who has no ways to save social security or focus and unlike the senate, there has been no leadership in three years and, ryan paul, has the courage to put forward real proposals. >> chris: let me, senator warner talk about the economic recovery, weak as it is in historical terms, the fact is, even though, as i say,
are needed each month to turn the economy around. so that is the big number we have. that's where we start. good morning. i'm bill hemmer. welcome here. morning, martha. martha: good morning bill. what a week. it is friday. welcome everybody, i'm martha maccallum. this jobs report today could be the freshest things people have in their mind in terms of a economic number when they head to the polls in a few days. this short shows it has been a very slow, sluggish recovery. the government reports real unemployment, this is the number we want to focus on, 14.6%. we say that for a good reason. that includes people that are underemployed, even people only worked one day, get counted in the underemployed, part time emed employed. some just have given up. bill: stuart varney, anchor fox business network. good morning to you. start with the more significant number you find there. what is that, stuart? >> that is the real unemployment rate. that gives the true picture of the employment situation in america today. the that real unemployment rate is 14.6%. that is a dismal picture of the employment p
has tuition for undock meanted people. is this a drain on our economy? let's start with you mr. doherty. >> sit a drain on the local economy? yes, it is. but we need comprehensive immigration reform. we've been talking about that for years. this administration said they would do that four years ago and it hasn't been done. just a political employ just a few months ago this administration put through their version of the dream act which doesn't make sense to me because it would leave some family members out and some would be safe. so we need comprehensive immigration reform. i just talked about some drug cases. in my career i focused on people who were here unlawfulfully who had committed crimes. that's a whole separate issue. in my view if someone is in this country illegally and they've committed a felony they should be deported immediately. and to that point, there is what's called an illegal reentry and this happens quite often where someone is arrested then they find the law enforcement finds they were here ten years before and arrested, incarcerated tried incarcerated depo
and big ideas and the romney campaign is it thinking that the electorate is right focused on the economy. and that all of this is it about the pocket book and all of it is what poem feel about the economy and how they look about the next four years and about the next, how, how the next four years will go and working with the other party. if you listen to governor romney he talks about bipartisanship and working with democrats and that is coming across in the final 24 hours. >> stow much criticism for the current president for not doing that. and not enough reaching across the aisle. and you would think that the next person who would take office would do a better job and do it differently. talking about focusing on the economy. karl rove said today in an article or interview with washington post. he feels super storm hurricane sandy may have taken them off message. >> karl doesn't say that unless the numbers prove it out. karl is a numbers guy. he's looking at numbers some place that have stalled for the romney campaign. >> do we know which he's look at. >> he made a bold prediction for t
: well, i'll take the question first. governor romney in the middle oh f a tough economy created almost 50,000 new jobs in massachusetts. let's remember. >> on "washington journal" tomorrow morning we'll look at virge. >> now we'll go to jacksonville florida where mitt romney is to speak shortly. he is with jeb bush. >> you ready to take back the white house? i thought you might be. how did you enjoy five for fighting? he's a really good guy. did you enjoy his song "freedom never cries"? this is an important election. this an election about what the future of america is going to be. is our future going to be more debt and more regulation and more taxes? sor our future going to be in less taxes, less regulations and. nibble mitt romney. he's the right candidate at the right time to be the president of the united states. [applause] you know in the state of florida we have 820,000 people out of work, people who will looking for work, people who have given up looking for work. we need someone who understands how jobs are created. that individuals create jobs not government that creates jobs
of that on top of already tough, tough economy. major department stores can derive 10% of sales from manhattan locations. a very big impact expected on the economy. the labor department releasing the final weekly jobs report before the presidential election. it shows 358,000 americans filing for first time jobless benefits. that is drop of just 9000. take a look back so you can keep it into perspective there is look since the start of the recession. we have little change since january when weekly jobless claims dropped to 360,000. tomorrow we get the last big monthly jobs report as the october number comes in. let's bring in fox business network stuart varney for a look at this. good mornings, stuart. what lies ahead? >> that is a difficult question to answer. looking at the numbers we received today from a couple of reports you can probably say tomorrow 8:30 eastern time there were roughly, 120,000 new jobs created last month. that is a very rough estimate looking at today's numbers. now let me go into today's numbers, they are politically loaded because they present a snapshot of the economy

and that is to turn america's economy around. it is turning around and denying it doesn't make it so. >> jimy williams and krystal ball, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> stay with us. much more ahead. >> there are no democrats and no republicans during a storm. there are just fellow americans. so uh this is my friend frank and his, uh, retirement plan. one golden crown. come on frank how long have we known each other? and that is to turn america's there are just fellow americans. . and that is to turn america's there are just fellow americans. . you realize the odds of winning are the same as being mauled by a polar bear and a regular bear in the same day? frank! oh wow, you didn't win? i wanna show you something... it's my shocked face.

that the economy is at a virtual standstill. creating 171,000 jobs a month. that's not the strongest knock. >> ronald reagan proved it's about trajectory. the trajectory of the jobs numbers. do people feel like the economy is getting better? are things looking better? if you look in states that matter, places like ohio where the economy has gotten substantially better and they can pinpoint why. they can point to that auto bailout. if you're in michigan or ohio you can point to that reason why, and that reason why has barack obama's name on it. >> if you listen to the little clips we played, it seems as though barack obama is energized -- >> that's apparent. >> mitt romney is going through the motions. >> let's go to the facts here we have on the table. i love the atmospherics. that's why i wanted to start with this. let's go to this peaking question. dick nixon, richard nixon, he was a smart politician as they go, and he used to believe -- he didn't want to the run all out. you're exhausted by election day. he said you have to peak at the right time. he almost caught kennedy. he was three

're nine million jobs short of that and he has no plan to get this economy going again to put americans to work. you notice there's some numbers he doesn't speak about. he doesn't use the number, 47. that happens to be how many million people are on food stamps today. 15 million more than than when he took office. he doesn't use the number 23 million. that's the number of people struggling to find a good job in this country. the president doesn't have a plan. he is out of ideas. he is out of excuses, and this november florida is going to make sure we put him out of office. [cheering] >> now in 2010, then-president obama came to pensacola. you probably weren't there, but some folks were. and he took pride in saying, and i quote, he halted reductions in the navy. that's what he said. but today, today he again has shrunk to a smaller version of the navy, and his view of the navy's role. you may recall in our most recent debate i made the point our navy is now smaller than at any time in, well, almost 100 years, and the president's response was, well, we don't use bayonets and horses anymor
here economy. autos. talk what go said barack obama that said were a few wars. one was about the auto industry. he said, you want to take those companies to bankruptcy. i supported a rescue package for the autos, but what obama said was not true. it was barack obama who took gm and chrysler through bankruptcy, ok? >> right? second, it was mitt romney who absolutely did provide for loan guarantees to ensure the warranties were backed up. that is what every fact checker who has looked at what obama said said he was wrong, he was not telling the truth. now, this is what is most important to this guy here and the other uaw workers that are here. it is the policies that mitt romney and paul ryan want to put in place that will make the auto industry strong -- [indiscernbile] he wants sensible regulations. he wants tax reform that will ensure we can get the auto companies back on their feet. he wants to make sure that trade is fair. he wants workers trained to work better for them. he wants their energy costs now. that is what will keep energy -- otter jobs here in ohio. that is what mitt ro
will be to restore the american economy so people can purr shoe their dreams as they see fit by limited government and build capacity so people don't have to get in line and be dependent upon government. no one wants to do that. we want a society where the next generation has more opportunities than what we have. and the american dream is what this election is about. are we going to reverse the track we're on which is a false sense of economic security where we get in line and have the government solve our problems for us? as if that's ever worked in american history. or are we going to restore american greatness the way we know it works best to create jobs in a strategic way with a guy as president that will work to build solutions rather than just talking about things? i was governor of this state for eight years and i had to work with a lot of democrats but i had to work with a lot of republicans as well because they were in the majority the whole time. imagine what it would be like to be a governor of a state where 85% of the legislature was in a different party. it would require leadership th
